Why do insects fly towards the light?

Is there any scientific explanation why insects always gather at the lamp post or any source of light at night?

    They fly towards the light because even though no insect ever said "let there be light," neverthelss "they saw the light and that it was good." Ever since then, they are "hooked." LOL

  • yeah insects fly towards the moon. Its navigation. So they see your light and think oooohhh closer moon and fly to it but they fail to see the light in both eyes so they hit things and swirl to get it in both eyes and fight straight
